Old Master Dong Ding Oolong(2021)

** 2021 Spring pick is fresh in stock! 

In 2019 we expanded the 'Old Master' series with this beautiful tea and it has quickly become a classic. This year's tea is another beautiful variation on the theme of past years. Produced by an 81-year-old tea master from the main village of Dong Ding, this complex tea gives rich creamy sweetness, sweet/sour fruit, roasted caramel and more as the leaves unfold. And it will only get better with age.

This tea is one of the signature teas of Mountain Stream Teas. It is worth a try even if you don't like roasted teas. In fact, it is worth a try especially if you don't like roasted teas!

Perfect lightly roasted daily drinker

This one really should be kept a secret. Great price quality relationship if you like them lightly roasted at a price where you can just have a never ending series of steeps, a few cuppa or the pot for the family on a lazy Sunday afternoon - no regrets

I shall be very sad if this one ever drops off the list…

A Very Well-Balanced and Satisfying Oolong

One of the better dark oolongs I've had; I enjoyed it very much. My cap is off the the gent or lady who has brought this tea into the world to be enjoyed, I hope, by many.

My favourite tea

Roasted and sweet. Enough flavour to re-steep a few times. I keep coming back for more.

Not like the others

You can find many Dong Ding Oolongs on the market. But this one is really a master tea. Toasty and sweet.
